Los Angeles – As shoppers leave the Ralphs on W. Ninth Street on Thursday, 15-year-old Joseph Arambula will be greeting them with PETA’s new app, which unleashes a spray of slaughterhouse smells called the “Scent of Death” on people who have bought chicken. The teen’s goal? To change the minds of shoppers about eating flesh. The action is to mark Memorial Day (May 26), when many people host or attend barbecues. PETA will be distributing the technology to kids nationwide.
When: Tuesday, May 20, 4 p.m.
Where: Outside Ralphs, 645 W. Ninth St. (near the intersection with Flower Street), Los Angeles
“It’s time for Americans to rethink honoring their country’s fallen service members by eating the corpses of animals who didn’t want to die,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “All anyone has to do is go vegan, and the ‘scent of death’ will never haunt them again.”
Reporters who can’t make the demonstration should contact PETA at the number or e-mail address below if they would like video of the event or to see the equipment.
